“Thank you is too light of a word,” said Mrs Turner. “I can’t think of how best to adequately convey our feelings.”
“It’s absolutely amazing this man is putting forward how he really feels about rural Australia. It’s quite emotional to know somebody is thinking about our farmers and landholders to such an extent,” she said.
A farmer herself, Mrs Turner knows well the impacts of the drought. She and husband Barry were forced to destock their back corner NSW property 15 months ago.
“Our organisation is proud to represent the interests of rural and regional NSW communities and many of our members are feeling the pain of this drought,” Mrs Turner said.
“It’s time for action and the kind of support that will make a real difference to the state’s producers, and by convening this forum we hope some great initiatives will be put on the table,” she said.
“Drought doesn’t just affect our farmers, it affects everybody who relies on our agricultural industries, and the communities in which they live.
“So it’s up to all of us to help make a real difference, and provide them with the support they need to carry on until the rain finally arrives.”
Mr Smith just made a real difference.
